Jump Blues - Blues 1 - Truefire (Music Video)


Uploaded on August 22, 2011 by Muzu

Jump Blues is a style that originated in the Big Bands of the late 40's and early 50's. Although guitar players played mostly rhythm in those days, the uptempo, open and fresh sound has had a major influence on blues guitar players and their solos. Copying the feel and rhythm parts of the horn sections that were featured in those Big Bands has found it's way into modern day jump blues. Playing these accompaniments makes playing backup as interesting and as challenging as playing a solo. This has made Jump Blues one of the most popular styles of blues in the last decades. Many modern blues bands use swing and jump riffs, licks and chord tricks that originated in those days. This "uptown" danceable kind of blues has a happier feel than the down home Delta style and is mostly played uptempo. It does require a little bit more studying, because we're using more than the minor pentatonic or blues scale. This course is designed in a way that you can introduce some new scales and chords to your solos and accompaniment, without having to study till your fingers bleed. It is a great way to break out of the "blues box" and can also be used as an introduction to playing jazz.-Jump Blues - Blues 1
